Doris Ann Chaffin, 74, of Flatwoods, died Saturday, Nov. 14, 2015, surrounded by her husband, children and some of her grandchildren, in Huntington Health and Rehabilitation Center. In July of this year, she was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and was undergoing treatment, but died from complications of the treatment.
Doris was born Feb. 26, 1941, in Fallsburg, a daughter of Leslie Crocket and Laura Ann Ferguson.
Doris was a loving and caring daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Her greatest achievement in life was her devotion to her family, friends and Jesus Christ.
Doris was the mother of three sons, Leslie and Carol Chaffin of Nampa, Idaho, David and Sharon Chaffin of Westwood, and Robert Thomas Chaffin, who only lived a month. She was the grandmother of Tiffany Burton, Leslie Crockett Chaffin, Christopher Allen Chaffin, Amber Nicole Chaffin and Charlene Elizabeth Sullivan; and the great-grandmother of Kaydence Chaffin, Bayleigh Waller and Gavin Waller. Her children and great-grandchildren were her joy.
The love of her life was Arnold Edward Chaffin, whom she met at the age of 14. They married five years later on July 14, 1960.
In addition to spending time with her family, Doris spent countless hours doing genealogy to know her family members who have passed on. She became so good she would help others with their research. Doris was a Christian. She was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, where she served in many areas of the church. She served in the Primary, Cub Scouts, Young Women, Relief Society and she visited members who could not come to church. Doris knew and loved The Lord, Jesus Christ, and tried to live a life following Him. Doris loved nature. She lived to sit and watch birds and animals.
We would like to thank the staff of St. Mary’s Regional Medical Center in Huntington and the Huntington Health and Rehabilitation Center for the way they took care of Doris.
Doris will be missed. She was the rock that held our family together.
A memorial service will be at the church at a later date.
